annenberg media ♪ narrator: in africa, south of the sahara, european colonization has had tremendous long-term impact on contemporary divisions of land. here, south africa's notorious legacy of race-based laws of apartheid profoundly affected the lives of the country's population. many people were removed from their ancestral lands and relocated to less desirable areas called homelands. with the end of apartheid, south africa is taking remarkable steps toward a more positive and unified future. at the heart of the transformation, though, is the volatile issue of land reform. repatriating people to their land is a complex and difficult process. we will see how one geographer is using global positioning system-- or gps technology-- as one tool to study how the land resources in south africa are being distributed and utilized.

, africa, 250 million years ago, in permian times, was much farther south, near the south pole. what we call the kalahari desert now was glaciated at that time. that wasn't long ago. that was only about 5% of geologic time. in the southwestern united states, too, there is evidence of a once widespread desert that existed 200 million years ago. fossil dunes are preserved in the upper wall of the grand canyon and in the sandstones of zion national park. the varied surfaces of the shifting sand dunes appear as crisscrossing sets of beds. their large size and coloration from the oxidation of iron show that they formed on dry land. since that time, plant and animal fossils indicate that this region became moist and forested. but in recent geologic time, conditions have become drier in response to plate motions, mountain building, and the development of rain shadows. some lands are deprived of moisture simply becausese they lie a great distance from the ocean, which is the primary source of moisture for rainfall. in western china, the gobi and the takla makan are both locked deep inside a lan
